Immigrants entering the United States illegally through the southern border are quietly being relocated to different parts of the country on commercial flights, high-ranking Homeland Security officials told Judicial Watch this week. In the last few days alone, groups of illegal aliens boarded planes at airports in Texas and Arizona accompanied by a taxpayer-funded government escort in civilian clothes to avoid drawing attention. The first flight originated at Valley International Airport in Harlingen, Texas and was bound for Minneapolis. The second left from Tucson International Airport and arrived in Salt Lake City, Utah, federal sources said. In both locations the illegal aliens appeared to be in their late teens and were escorted by a Health and Human Services (HHS) chaperone. Judicial Watch reached out to HHS for comment but did not hear back from the agency.
The illegal aliens wear red HHS wrist bands and receive “the gold glove treatment,” according to a veteran federal official, who added that the undocumented immigrants get priority boarding ahead of all other passengers, including law enforcement personnel. “It is shameful and dangerous,” said a seasoned Homeland Security agent with direct knowledge of the secret operations. Labor personnel from front-line Department of Homeland Security (DHS) agencies have complained about the cost and security risk of flying illegal alien minors to any destination of their choosing within the U.S., according to a longtime Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) official present at the meetings. One of the closed-door meetings, late last year, included President Donald Trump and his chief of staff, John Kelly.
In the same news story, the head of the ICE officers’ union (Chris Crane) and the National Border Patrol Council (Brandon Judd) said detrimental old policies remain in place because Obama managers are still running their agencies. Crane, a veteran ICE agent, refers to the Obama holdovers as “incompetent, corrupt and anti-enforcement.” Judd said word is getting back to Mexico and Central America that illegal border crossers will be released if caught, resulting in a huge increase in crossings. In a period of a few months, border crossings skyrocketed from 11,100 in a single month to 26,000, according to figures provided in the news story. Immigrants from Asia are also entering the U.S. through Mexico, federal officials say. In San Diego, California agents apprehended dozens of illegal aliens from Asian countries in the last few months, including more than 60 from India.

Trump made a revealing, off-the-cuff comment that could explain why he hasn’t fired Mueller
President Donald Trump told The New York Times in an interview that the Russia investigation had strengthened his base and prompted members of Congress to defend him.
The remark could partially explain why Trump has not tried to fire the special counsel Robert Mueller.
“I think it’s been proven that there is no collusion,” Trump said.
President Donald Trump told The New York Times in an interview published Thursday that the investigation into potential collusion between his campaign team and Moscow had strengthened his base and prompted some “great congressmen” to begin “pointing out what a witch hunt the whole thing is.”
Trump told The Times that he did not intend to fire Robert Mueller, the special counsel leading the investigation.
Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) used the term “chain” migration in a White House immigration meeting, despite now denouncing President Trump’s use of the term, which is used to describe the process where newly naturalized citizens can bring an unlimited number of foreign relatives to the U.S. with them.
The latest undercover video from Project Veritas featured eight former and current Twitter employees explaining how the social media site goes out of its way to ban and censor conservative and pro-Trump content.
According to some current employees, the site will start employing shadow bans and algorithms that will give them even more power to silence political views that they don’t like. The algorithms could apparently be used to hunt down Trump-supporting “rednecks” and other “shitty people.”
Media reporter Amber Athey said the undercover video reminded her of Google’s bias that The Daily Caller uncovered earlier this week. When someone searches for a number of conservative sites on Google, they are greeted with a list of incorrect “fact checks,” while left-leaning sites get off scot-free.

Noose Tightens: Crooked Cops James Comey and Andrew McCabe Go Silent
January 11, 2018
On Wednesdsay night Sean Hannity told his audience he heard either former FBI Director James Comey or FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe paid for the phony Trump dossier that was then used by US intelligence officials to spy on Trump.
The revelation that Twitter employees can read everyone’s private messages has prompted some to ask if resentful anti-Trump staffers could leak sensitive information from the president’s own account.
Earlier today, Project Veritas dropped a new undercover video in which ClayHaynes, a senior network security engineer at Twitter, acknowledged that the social media company had the power to do things that were “actually very terrifying”.
When asked to explain, Haynes responded, “We have full access to every single person’s account, every single direct message, deleted direct messages, deleted tweets.”
This prompted some to wonder whether employees working for the notoriously far-left company would abuse this power to sabotage Donald Trump.
“Hey @jack, are Twitter employees accessing @realDonaldTrump’s DMs and passing them on to Democrat operatives and reporters? The new @Project_Veritas video demands answers,” asked Mark Dice?
Although it’s highly unlikely that Trump personally uses Twitter’s direct message service to communicate with anyone (he prefers to call people), it’s not unreasonable to think that members of his staff use the platform to coordinate both media appearances and narratives.
Trump writes most of his own tweets, but the White House’s director of social media, Dan Scavino, also has access to and uses Trump’s account, according to media reports.
Given Twitter’s direct access to the president’s private messages, it’s not out of bounds to be concerned about this being a national security issue.
Last year, a Twitter employee infamously deleted Donald Trump’s account for about 10 minutes on his last day of working for the company. Bahtiyar Duysak later claimed the deletion was a “mistake,” although he admitted setting the process in motion in response to a complaint that Trump had violated Twitter’s terms of service.
“My Twitter account was taken down for 11 minutes by a rogue employee. I guess the word must finally be getting out-and having an impact,” Trump subsequently tweeted.
EILAT, Israel — The founders of the controversial opposition research firm Fusion GPS admitted that they helped the researcher they hired to compile their infamous, largely discredited 35-page dossier on President Donald Trump to share the document with Sen. John McCain.
I was sitting in the nearly empty restaurant of the Westin Hotel in Alexandria, Virginia, getting ready for a showdown with the federal government that I had been trying to avoid for more than seven years. The Obama administration was demanding that I reveal the confidential sources I had relied on for a chapter about a botched CIA operation in my 2006 book, “State of War.” I had also written about the CIA operation for the New York Times, but the paper’s editors had suppressed the story at the government’s request. It wasn’t the only time they had done so.
A MARKETPLACE OF SECRETS
BUNDLED AGAINST THE freezing wind, my lawyers and I were about to reach the courthouse door when two news photographers launched into a perp-walk shoot. As a reporter, I had witnessed this classic scene dozens of times, watching in bemusement from the sidelines while frenetic photographers and TV crews did their business. I never thought I would be the perp, facing those whirring cameras.
As I walked past the photographers into the courthouse that morning in January 2015, I saw a group of reporters, some of whom I knew personally. They were here to cover my case, and now they were waiting and watching me. I felt isolated and alone……Read full story here

Trump spoke via video teleconference to rooms packed full of service members stationed in Qatar, Kuwait, Guantanamo Bay and the USS Sampson in 5th Fleet OPS Underway, according to the pool report.Trump spoke to five deployed units, one from each branch.“I just want to wish everybody a very, very merry Christmas, we say Merry Christmas, again, very, very proudly. Very very merry Christmas. We’re going to have a great year, an incredible year. I’m thrilled to bring seasons greetings on behalf of the first lady and our entire family and most importantly, on behalf of the American people. Today and every day we’re incredibly thankful for you and for your families. Your families have been tremendous. Always under-appreciated, military families, the greatest people on earth.”
“As we celebrate this most precious holiday, we’re grateful for each of you who spend this Christmas away from our families and defend all of our families, our freedom and our flag. Every American heart is thankful and we’re asking God to watch over you and to watch over your families.”
Amazon And Google Employees Busted In Asian Sex Trafficking Sting
Several Seattle employees of both Google and Amazon were busted after using their corporate accounts to send emails to local brothels and pimps looking to purchase services from sex workers trafficked from Asia, according to emails obtained by Newsweek.
“[E]mails obtained by Newsweek reveal another sordid corner of the tech sector’s treatment of women: a horny nest of prostitution “hobbyists” at tech giants Microsoft, Amazon and other firms in Seattle’s high tech alley.”
Many of the emails were swept up in a 2015 sting operation which targeted online chat rooms and message boards in which customers rate sex workers – resulting in the arrest of 18 of these “prostitution hobbyists,” including several high level Amazon and Microsoft directors – two of which are currently scheduled for trial in March.
Jeff Bezos Humiliation: Amazon Employees Embroiled In Sex Trafficking Scandal
December 25, 2017
According to a new report, Amazon employees appear to have been caught ‘purchasing services from trafficked sex workers.’
The tech industry has a clear history of sexism and misogyny, but a recent Newsweek report highlights another problem. The publication got its hands on a slew of emails sent to brothels and pimps between 2014 and 2016 that document the industry’s patronage of brothels and purchasing of services from trafficked sex workers. Among the emails, which were obtained through a public records request to the King County Prosecutor’s Office, were 67 sent from Microsoft employee email accounts, 63 from Amazon accounts and dozens more from companies like Boeing, T-Mobile, Oracleand local Seattle tech firms.
Some of the emails were collected during a 2015 sting operation that targeted sex worker review boards and resulted in the arrest of 18 individuals, including high-level Amazon and Microsoft directors. Two opted for a trial, which is currently set to begin in March.
Here are the worst left-wing feminist sex abuse-enablers and monsters of 2017 — including Mika Brzezinski, Meryl Streep, Gloria Allred, and Lisa Bloom.
DARPA VADER AND THE EVIL INTEL EMPIRE INSIDE UNCOVERING THE DOD SITH LORDS THAT CONTROL YOUR LAPTOP
THANKS TO MLORDAND GOD FOR READING THE ARTICLE. FOR THOSE OF YOU ON THE GO, TAKE THESE AUDIO READINGS AND CATCH UP ON YOUR DRIVE TO WORK. PART 1 AND PART 2.
One of the best ways to describe the U.S. Department of Defense and DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) is to use the Star Wars moniker “Evil Empire” to describe its international, secretive agenda to take over the world and turn all of us into neo-feudal slaves who have no choice but to give allegiance to the controllers of the universe—Darth Vader and the Sith Lords.
DARPA “Vader” has controlled technological innovation since 1958 when it was created by the military-driven Evil Empire, a/k/a Department of Defense. Every emerging technology from the Evil Empire leads humanity into the science fiction fate of machines controlling humans, much like Darth Vader became a weapon that was half man and half machine. There is much wisdom and truth that lies behind the first Star Wars movie, and its story was given to humanity as a warning of how the Evil Empire and its Death Star planned to destroy the entire planet.
Folks, this is no longer science fiction. This battle for Earth is going on now and we, like the Rebel Alliance, must join forces to destroy the imperial forces of Darth Vader.
Social media giant Facebook will no longer be marking news stories as “disputed” because the company says people are more likely to believe possibly inaccurate news stories carrying the tag.
Business Insider UK reports that Facebook will no longer be marking news stories with a “disputed” tag, a measure introduced this year in an attempt to crack down on “fake news” on their platform. The tag was meant to make Facebook users question the source of the information they were reading, however, most users seemed to double down on believing the information in “disputed” articles due to the tag assigned by Facebook.
Facebook published two posts on their blog recently, both mentioning that the tag would soon be dropped. One of the posts reads:
Academic research on correcting misinformation has shown that putting a strong image, like a red flag, next to an article may actually entrench deeply held beliefs — the opposite effect to what we intended. Related Articles, by contrast, are simply designed to give more context, which our research has shown is a more effective way to help people get to the facts. Indeed, we’ve found that when we show Related Articles next to a false news story, it leads to fewer shares than when the Disputed Flag is shown.
In another post published on the blogging platform Medium by three Facebook staffers working to prevent the spread of what they consider to be fake news on the platform, the staffers explained that giving more context to stories led to a sharp drop in the spread of allegedly fake news and that adding related articles to a disputed story was more effective than just branding it with a tag:
During these tests, we learned that although click-through rates on the hoax article don’t meaningfully change between the two treatments, we did find that the Related Articles treatment led to fewer shares of the hoax article than the disputed flag treatment.
The three staffers claim that academic research shows that further context given to fake news could help to “reduce misperceptions.” Facebook will still continue using other methods to crack down on what they call fake news, such as using fact-checkers to verify stories and reduce the number of false articles shared on the platform, as well as sending alerts to users that share disputed articles with extra content providing context to the story that they shared.

The Alex Jones Show – DECEMBER 21, 2017
The people are waking up to the dangers of globalism and Donald Trump is destroying the globalist agenda.
Twitter has begun its long-anticipated purge of right-wing and far-right accounts, under the guise of cracking down on “violent extremism.” Meanwhile, far-left accounts connected to real-world violence remain active on the platform.
So far, the Twitter purge includes multiple accounts connected to the alt-right and “race realism,” including Jared Taylor and the account of white advocacy magazine American Rennaissance. The publisher of the alt-right magazine Occidental Dissent also received a ban.
Also banned was the deputy leader of Britain First, Jayda Fransen, who was retweeted by President Trump last month.
Proud Boy Magazine, the account of the pro-western fraternal organization founded by CRTV honest Gavin McInnes, was also kicked off Twitter.
Also purged was the European identitarian group Generation Identity, and the English Defence League, an anti-Islamization group founded by Rebel Media contributor Tommy Robinson.
Twitter says that they are targeting their bans against groups and individuals that are connected to “violent extremism” and organizations that “use or promote violence against civilians to further their cause.” Twitter announced last month they are will now monitor and sanction users for behavior that does not take place on their platform, including offline behavior.

On Saturday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends,” Fox News Contributor and former Republican House Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz argued that Attorney General Jeff Sessions should step down.
Chaffetz said, “I’ve got to tell you, and it pains me to say this a little bit, but I don’t think the attorney general is up to the job that he’s doing. He’s absent from this. The reason there’s a special counsel is because he had to recuse himself from everything. And I just, my own personal opinion, I think it’s time for the attorney general to go. Because you need leadership there, some deep systemic problems there.”
Chaffetz also cited the DOJ not turning over documents on the Fast & Furious program and Sessions’ refusal to prosecute Clinton tech aide Bryan Pagliano for defying a Congressional subpoena.

Exclusive: Promient lawyer sought donor cash for two Trump accusers
A well-known women’s rights lawyer sought to arrange compensation from donors and tabloid media outlets for women who made or considered making sexual misconduct allegations against Donald Trumpduring the final months of the 2016 presidential race, according to documents and interviews.
California lawyer Lisa Bloom’s efforts included offering to sell alleged victims’ stories to TV outlets in return for a commission for herself, arranging a donor to pay off one Trump accuser’s mortgage and attempting to secure a six-figure payment for another woman who ultimately declined to come forward after being offered as much as $750,000, the clients told The Hill.
The women’s accounts were chronicled in contemporaneous contractual documents, emails and text messages reviewed by The Hill, including an exchange of texts between one woman and Bloom that suggested political action committees supporting Hillary Clinton were contacted during the effort.
Bloom, who has assisted dozens of women in prominent harassment cases and also defended film executive Harvey Weinstein earlier this year, represented four women considering making accusations against Trump last year. Two went public, and two declined.
In a statement to The Hill, Bloom acknowledged she engaged in discussions to secure donations for women who made or considered making accusations against Trump before last year’s election.
“Donors reached out to my firm directly to help some of the women I represented,” said Bloom, whose clients have also included accusers of Bill Cosby and Bill O’Reilly.

It’s not getting much advance PR, but Barbra Streisand’s releasing a live album on Friday that should take her straight to number 1.
The timing is perfect because Columbia Records is in dire need of a chart hit right now. They’ve been dry for weeks except for Mariah Carey’s Christmas album. Streisand at number 1 will give the Sony label the shot of adrenaline it needs.
Streisand’s release is “The Music, the Mem’ries, the Magic,” the live audio part of her Netflix concert that’s already airing on the TV like platform. The deluxe version contains some songs she’s rarely performed, like “By the Way” from 1975. Streisand wrote it herself for the “Lazy Afternoon” album. She’s only sung it live three times, just for this tour and album.
The album is already sitting at number 58 on Amazon without much fanfare. The last time Barbra had a new release– her “Encores” album– she appeared on Jimmy Fallon and went right to number 1. Let’s see if she turns up on late night TV next week.
Meantime, U2’s new release, “Songs of Experience,” may only come in at number 2 this Friday with sales hovering around 100,000. Great reviews, I loved it personally. But maybe it’s backlash from the “Songs of Innocence” release that was forced onto iTunes accounts. This one has so many great songs………

US Forest Service Finds 34 Cases Of Sexual Harassment After InternalReview
After decades of denying it, the U.S. Forest Service (USFS) has finally acknowledged it has systemic problems with sexual harassment.
“Since implementing an updated anti-harassment policy in September 2016, the agency has carefully reviewed and resolved over 400 cases of alleged harassment,” the USFS said. “Of the 400 cases, Forest Service has substantiated 83 cases of harassment including 1 sexual assault (that employee was removed); 34 cases of sexual harassment (employees were removed/terminated, suspended or received reprimands depending on the offense;) and 51 employees were found to have engaged in other, non-sexual harassment.”

Secret Informant in Fear for His Life After Jeff Sessions’ DOJ Leaks His Name One Week Before Testifying
Joe Hoft – The Jeff Sessions DOJ leaked the name of the FBI informant in the Clinton Uranium One bribery case.
On the Sean Hannity Show it was reported that the Sessions DOJ told Reuters the man’s name who has information on the Clinton Foundation and Uranium One is William D. Campbell.
Campbell worked as a consultant for a Russian firm. According to reporter John Solomon the informant is a consultant and his evidence will show Russian agents with suitcases of cash ready to bribe the Clintons for US uranium.
Investigative reporter John Solomon from The Hill told Sean Hannity on Thursday the consultant has video of briefcases full of money used to bribe US officials in the Russia uranium scandal involving Hillary Clinton.
Solomon says the Reuters report today downplaying the informant is completely inaccurate.
The informant says he is in fear for his life since he was outed by the Sessions DOJ.
Campbell will reportedly testify on Monday if he makes it that long.
Let’s hope Campbell pre-recorded his testimony. Since he is implicating the Clintons in the largest case of treason in US history he has got to be a marked man.

Jonathan Easley writes for The Hill that Stephen K. Bannon is sticking with Judge Roy Moore in Alabama, amid speculation that Bannon is hedging his bets on the candidate:
Sources close to Breitbart News chairman Stephen Bannon insist he is sticking by embattled Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore (R) even as high-profile conservatives cut ties with the candidate less than a month before election day.
People who have spoken with Bannon and others who are familiar with his thinking say reports that he is having second thoughts about his support for Moore are overcooked.
The Daily Beast reported Tuesday that Bannon is privately discussing whether the allegations of sexual misconduct about Moore have become too serious to overcome. Bannon could be looking to save his political capital for the scores of primary challenges he’s planning for Republican senators up for reelection in 2018, the report says.
Breitbart News Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon gave an address hosted by Citizen Power for China in Tokyo on Tuesday night, in which he talked about China’s aggressive agenda for the 21st Century and the working-class revolt against the elites in democratic societies around the world.
The tide is turning: Big Pharma billionaire arrested, charged with conspiracy and bribery of doctors
I almost never thought I’d see the day when a Big Pharma founder and owner was finally arrested for running a criminal drug cartel, but that day has arrived.
“Federal authorities arrested the billionaire founder and owner of Insys Therapeutics Thursday on charges of bribing doctors and pain clinics into prescribing the company’s fentanyl product to their patients,” reports the Daily Caller News Foundation, one of the best sources of real journalism in America today.
Addictive drugs that include opioids, we now know, are claiming over 64,000 lives a year in the United States alone.
From the DCNF:
The Department of Justice (DOJ) charged John Kapoor, 74, and seven other current and former executives at the pharmaceutical company with racketeering for a leading a national conspiracy through bribery and fraud to coerce the illegal distribution of the company’s fentanyl spray, which is intended for use as a pain killer by cancer patients. The company’s stock prices fell more than 20 percent following the arrests, according to the New York Post.
Killer Goes on Shooting Spree in Rural Northern California, Killing 4
A gunman went on a shooting spree in Tehama County in rural Northern California on Tuesday, killing four people before he was shot and killed by law enforcement.
The gunman, who had yet to be identified as of 2:35 p.m. Pacific Standard Time on Tuesday afternoon, “appeared to pick targets at random,” according to local authorities cited by the Los Angeles Times. One target was an elementary school, where two children were wounded.
The Times reports:
Officials don’t have a motive for the attack but said the gunman seemed to fire at random and might have been in some type of dispute with neighbors.
The gunfire began around 8 a.m. in Rancho Tehama, near Red Bluff, about 120 miles northwest of Sacramento.
“It was all over in about 45 minutes,” Assistant Sheriff Phil Johnston said.
A semi-automatic rifle and two handguns were recovered after deputies shot and killed the gunman.
The Eureka Times-Standard, a regional newspaper, reported that ten people had been injured in the shootings.
USA Todayreported that the gunman was a felon — and hence not eligible to purchase or own firearms. It also noted that he “had been shooting hundreds of rounds of bullets in recent days” and that he had stolen two cars, crashing one, during the course of his attack.
“The crazy thing is that the neighbor has been shooting a lot of bullets lately, hundreds of rounds, large magazines,” neighbor Brian Flint told USA Today. “We made it aware that this guy is crazy and he’s been threatening us.”

MONTGOMERY, Alabama — Judge Roy Moore, the GOP nominee for the U.S. Senate in Alabama, told nationally syndicated radio host Sean Hannity on Friday afternoon that his campaign is conducting its own investigation into the allegations against him and has “some evidence of some collusion” against him.
Moore said when Hannity asked him to respond to the dozens of establishment Republicans demanding he step down from his race for the U.S. Senate:
If you step aside for any allegation, then you might as well not run because when you run you’re going to get allegations. First, I would tell these individuals they wouldn’t make good judges. They wouldn’t make good people in the judicial system because you are innocent until proven guilty. In this case, this woman has waited over 40 years to bring a complaint four weeks out of an election? It’s obvious to the casual observer that something is up. We’re also doing an investigation and we have some evidence of some collusion here but we’re not ready to put that to the public just yet.

Republicans seek special counsel’s removal from Russia probe
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Three Republican U.S. lawmakers called on Friday for Robert Mueller to resign as special counsel investigating Russia and the 2016 U.S. election, the latest in a series of conservatives’ criticisms of the FBI and Justice Department during the probe of how Moscow may have influenced the campaign.
Representatives Matt Gaetz, Andy Biggs and Louis Gohmert accused Mueller of a conflict of interest because he was director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation when former President Barack Obama’s administration approved an agreement allowing a Russian company to buy a Canadian company that owned 20 percent of U.S. uranium supplies.

In a new book Donna Brazile, former interim chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, reveals the chaos and chicanery that took place inside the organization during the 2016 presidential campaign, including Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s (D-FL) poor management style when she headed the committee.
The stunning revelation by longtime operative Donna Brazile that the Hillary Clinton campaign secretly took control — literal control — of the Democratic National Committee a year before Hillary became the party’s nominee is the talk of American politics.

The last couple of days have been whirlwinds for journalists covering breaking news regarding the various scandals involving a number of figures in the former Obama administration and the Democratic Party.
In fact, in just a few short days, so much new information has come out regarding the long-discredited “Trump dossier” and events and actions surrounding the sale of Uranium One to the Russians that we thought you might better understand just what’s going on and why it’s important if we laid it out for you:
— The first report came fromThe Hill, which noted that the FBI had discovered evidence of a Russian bribery scheme involving key players in the Uranium One deal before the Obama administration approved it.
— The Bureau discovered evidence that “Russian nuclear industry officials were engaged in bribery, kickbacks, extortion and money laundering designed to grow Vladimir Putin’s atomic energy business inside the United States.”
— Moreover, an eyewitness to the corruption and an FBI asset in the case, along with additional documentation, indicated that Russian nuclear officials routed millions of dollars to the U.S. that were aimed at benefiting the charity of former President Bill Clinton and then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the Clinton Foundation, at a time when Hillary served on a government entity that approved the sale to a Russian state-owned nuclear firm, Rosatom.
— At the time of this investigation and its findings, around 2010, Robert Mueller was head of the FBI. Mueller is now special counsel investigating alleged “collusion” between President Donald J. Trump’s campaign and the Russian government, even though it’s clear now that there was “collusion” between the Obama administration, the Clintons, and Russia.
— But instead of bringing immediate charges in the case, the Department of Justice under Obama attorney general appointees Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch, continued to ‘investigate’ the case for more than four years, “essentially leaving the American public and Congress in the dark about Russian nuclear corruption on U.S. soil during a period when the Obama administration made two major decisions benefiting Putin’s commercial nuclear ambitions,” The Hill noted.
“The Russians were compromising American contractors in the nuclear industry with kickbacks and extortion threats, all of which raised legitimate national security concerns. And none of that evidence got aired before the Obama administration made those decisions,” a person who worked on the case told The Hill.
— At the time the FBI found out about Uranium One racketeering, bribery and corruption, the Obama regime and the Clinton State Department was engaged in an ultimately unsuccessful “Russia reset,” so disclosure of Moscow’s criminal behavior would have been an embarrassment.
The next bombshell report involves who paid for the bogus Trump dossier; it turns out that Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee did, after denying it for nearly a year, according to the Washington Post.
— Congress has been attempting to find out who paid opposition research firm Fusion GPS to create the dossier, the latest attempt involving the issuance of a subpoena for Fusion’s banking records by the House Intelligence Committee. Fusion has been fighting the subpoena.
— And yet, the dossier was used as justification by Comey’s FBI to convince the secretive Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court to grant the bureau a warrant so it could secretly monitor Trump campaign official Carter Page. Later, the FBI expanded itsinvestigationto ‘wiretap’ Trump Tower.
— Comey, you may recall, made the unusual decision to publicly state in July 2016 that he would not recommend Hillary Clinton be prosecuted by the Justice Department (during the heart of the presidential campaign) despite the fact she had broken numerous statutes governing the handling of classified government data. Come to find out he had begun writing is exoneration memomonths in advance.
Two things are crystal clear after this week’s reporting:
Bill and Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, not Trump, are guilty of “Russian collusion;”
After Senator Jeff Flake of Arizona excoriated President Trump on the Senate floor while announcing that he will not be running for re-election in 2018, New York Times columnist David Brooks and syndicated columnist Mark Shields sat down with Judy Woodruff during PBS News Hour and analyzed the growing rift in the Republican party.
During her Saturday Fox News Channel “Justice” opening statement, Jeanine Pirro declared that it is time to lock Hillary Clinton after the report that the Clinton campaign funded research that resulted in the Steele Dossier.
“It’s time to shut it down, turn the tables and lock her up,” Pirro said of Clinton. “That’s what I said. I actually said it. Lock her up.”
Pirro went on to say that Special Counsel Robert Mueller and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein need to “be fired immediately” for the handling of the Hillary Clinton email scandal and Uranium One deal, adding former FBI Director Jim Comey needs to be investigated for his role.
“It’s time for the Republicans to step up to the plate to man up and do their job or get the hell out,” Pirro concluded.

Tinseltown Travelogue, Part I: Dear Right-wingers, We Hate You. Love, Hollywood
Tinseltown Travelogue is a three-part series exploring Hollywood’s stunning hypocrisy and institutionalized bigotry. This story, months in the making, comes on the heels of the explosive New York Times exposé of alleged sexual misconduct over decades by Tinseltown’s most celebrated producer, Harvey Weinstein, and furtther unmasks an industry in the midst of an ethical unraveling.

ATTENTION ALL TRUMP VOTERS, IMMEDIATELY EXIT STAGE RIGHT
Conservatives once roamed free in Tinseltown…back in the Golden Age of Hollywood. Studio head Louis B. Mayer was an outspoken Republican. John Wayne, Walt Disney, and Gary Cooper sat right-of-center…as did Ginger Rogers, Clark Gable, and Cecil B. DeMille. The Right played a prominent role in those early days. But now this company town is run almost entirely by liberals, and has been for over half a century. How were they able to make it a one-party city? “It’s the social part. It’s the personal,” said an industry veteran. “It’s psychological warfare.” In other words, leftists attacked social circles to freeze out conservatives.
As the ground operatives stood calmly on the dusty country road, snapping shots of their prize perched high above the dry sunlit field – a few Intel agents, remotely monitoring the situation, smelled trouble brewing. The entire team was foolishly communicating over unsecured channels during a live operation. Why the break in protocol? Being on the cusp of punking Hollywood’s loudest Trump basher was just too tempting.
